Lower Eye Hollow
If you “look tired” even when you’re well rested, if you’ve got bags under your eyes and dark circles that weren’t there just a year ago, the culprit might be the aging process.
The area beneath the eyes is one of the first places where we typically see signs of facial aging. As we age, skin tends to sag beneath the eyelid, allowing pockets of protrude, creating the impression of “bags” under the eyes. Unfortunately, this change usually happens just as we start to lose volume in the upper part of the cheek. So, as one part of the anatomy bags forward and the other sags down, the result can be a deep hollow under the eyes that creates shadows (the “dark circles”).
Although one way of correcting an aging lower eyelid is blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, injectable fillers can be a less expensive, less invasive, and instant (albeit temporary) solution. An injectable filler is used to restore volume to the upper part of the cheek, filling in the hollow so that the shadows are eliminated and the bags are less noticeable.
If you’re not pleased with the look of your eyes, schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Siporin. He’ll help you decide if lower eye correction with an injectable filler might be right for you.
